Hey! It’s week two of Weekend Farmers’ Market Blogging! This weekly series is all about celebrating local eating from the farmers market to the kitchen.
We planted our community garden plot this week — finally!
Cabbage, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, Swiss chard, radishes and spring onions are now in varying states of growth there. It’s pretty rad to see how much it all grew in just a few days (stay tuned for update pictures next week)
Choosing the plants was surprisingly fun. The kids and I looked at radishes and tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers, greens and beans and so much more. We debated the merits of adding a spicy pepper to the mix and discussed the things that wouldn’t work at this point in our raised bed garden — broccoli, corn and lettuce, for instance. In the end, we left with a cart overflowing with seeds, plants and more. But it wasn’t until we were plotting out the plantings at our garden that I realized we’d bought too much — way too much.
